Alan Pardew's men have now won only one of their last six Premier League fixtures, and although they have lost just two, they have slipped off the pace as they attempt to repeat last season's top-five finish.

Swansea are next up for Newcastle at St James' Park this weekend and Taylor is keen for them to get back to winning ways.

Taylor said: "We have to take positives out of Sunday's game, move on to next week and put in a good performance for ourselves and the fans.

"The main thing is that we get the three points that we want. But Swansea are a very, very good team, so we are going to have to be patient."

Former Newcastle midfielder Kevin Nolan hit the winner for West Ham and Taylor had mixed feelings about his return to the north-east.

He said: "It was nice for him to come back. We are disappointed he got the goal, but we have just got to get on with it.

"He's a very good player and he's a goalscoring midfielder. I don't know how he hasn't had his chance for England."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
